Trump Camp Denied Porn Star Hush Money Payment

President Trump and Stephanie Clifford (Stormy Daniels)

The Wall Street Journal reported today that Stephanie Clifford (stage name Stormy Daniels) was paid $130,000 right before the election to keep silent about an affair with President Trump in 2006.

According to the Journal, and quoting unnamed sources familiar with the events, Stephanie Clifford was set to go on a morning talk show and talk about it, but abruptly pulled out right before the election.

At the time, Michael Cohen, lawyer for the Trump Organization denied that this was the case and produced a picture signed by Ms. Clifford with the note:

“Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false. If indeed I did have a relationship with Donald Trump, trust me, you wouldn’t be reading about it in the news, you would be reading about it in my book.  But the fact of the matter is, these stories are not true,” it said.

Clifford did not comment directly to the Journal, and Clifford’s lawyer declined to comment.

According to the Journal, Michael Cohen is the person that arranged the payment.

He also added , “Rumors have been circulating about this since 2011.”

The reason this would become news if indeed there was a payment, is that Trump married Melania on January 22, 2005.

If this is true and it seems that a feeding frenzy has begun with the MSM, Ms. Clifford is sure to comment shortly.

For a settlement/non-disclosure payment of $130,000, she might have only received about $90,000 after Attorney’s fees. With another 20-30% taken out for taxes, that would leave her net somewhere around $68,000.

Even if those estimates are way out of whack and she could keep it all, that amount would be chump change for what a tabloid would pay her to spill about the affair.

Typically, with non-disclosure agreements, you have to pay back what you were given if you breach the agreement.

She would stand to earn a lot more if she sold her story or wrote a book.

If Trump did indeed give $130,000 to a Porn Star to keep quiet…. we have certainly not heard the end of it.

Right now, he might be happy that people would be talking about that instead of the sh*thole comment.
